A nice square with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. We ate lunch here on two occasions and stopped another time to have drinks. A good area to relax and enjoy the Puerto de la Cruz ambience.

One of the very few places where you can enjoy a drink ( either alcohol or non alcoholic ) and just watch the world pass you by.

A 15 min walk from the sea front, just next to the fishing marina, a nice relaxed place to sit in a bar and have lunch and watch the world pass by. Recommend the Columbus for a good lunch.

I love a good spanish plaza but I can't say I like it to be filled with a selection of tribute artists booming out at each bar (at least they were singing in tune). It is certainly very lively though.

Like a few old towns, this centre is pretty commercialised but what do you expect? The island lives off tourism. We passed through the square several times and ate once in the afternoon at a reasonable tapas bar. Late in the evening this place is buzzing with life. A great place to sit back and take a leaf out of... More

we where lucky enough to have arrived just as a couple of local festivals where getting underway..the square I was assured was as vibrant as it was then all year round not to sure about that one, but I believe it could still be a pleasant place to sit during the quiet months in the town.

They say what happens in Puerto De La Cruz, stays in Puerta De La Cruz! Trus enough, you may have a cozy table in your back garden to sit in on a sunny Sunday.....but what matters is also being able to watch the world go by ....there is Maria with her Puppy, there is a couple on their first date,...
